Checks, Herringbone, Plaid & Green

Since I added my check drapes to the family room, I have been having fun seeing what patterns and colors I can add to the room to create different looks.  When I was out shopping with my friend the other day, we stopped by Hobby Lobby to check out all their goodies, and I found their fabulous section with pillow covers.  How fun, they had tons of colors and patterns from $3.99 to $6.99 plus as usual 50% off.  I picked up quite an assortment, you can see that post here.
  
 I found these fabulous brown herringbone and thought they would be great with my check drapes.

 I love this brown linen one with the wood buttons too.  Fabulous pillows for $3.50 each and they are really well made too.  I added a green and brown one I had for more pattern and a touch of happy color.


 My plaid throw still works with the mix too.


 A little more lime green and this is a fun new color scheme.




 It ties in well with my centerpiece arrangement on the breakfast area table.


 This is the gorgeous bunny I found at Home Goods on the same shopping trip.  You can see that post here.


I am really enjoying the new pillows and definitely need to shop for more colors and patterns too.  The green adds just a touch of spring, love it.





So, do you like to mix patterns and colors too?

    I love adding green to my home decor this time of year too. Green feels like early Spring to me.
    Your home looks bright and cheery with your "green touches."

  10. I've always liked apple green and dark brown together. Your new pillow covers from Hobby Lobby are wonderful! I saw that they sold those at my store too. I keep checking them out in case they get new patterns in. What a deal! I like the mix of the Chevron pattern and the checked curtains very much.

  50. The new pillows look fabulous, Marty! They all look fantastic with your new drapes! I bought some of the pillow covers, too! Herringbone was a bit too "daring" for me, but I found some really cute bird prints and a solid one with the buttons, but in a lighter color. I don't know why I had never thought of looking at those, but I was tired of always making my own. I was so happy that they had zippers.

  51. Wow! Absolutely gorgeous! Your beautiful home is all set for a spring party, Marty! Every detail is endearing and I love the green accents in every corner!
